If you’ve never read The Yellow Wallpaper or had to for school you should do that.
The author suffered from psychosis but as a woman in the late 1800’s the “professional” attitude was that she was just a dumb silly woman and needed to rest in bed until she just got over it. She was outright forbidden from writing because it would be “too stimulating” to all those dumb hysterical womanly problems and she had to do it in secret just to cling to what sanity she could.
In response to this bullshit she finally wrote this brilliant short psychological horror story that will give you the fucking creeps in all sorts of ways, from the atmosphere and events to the story to the horrifying culture it reflects.
She sent a copy directly to her shitty-ass doctor who never responded and went on being a shithead until he died, but to many other people the story was a wake-up call and still considered a groundbreaking feminist work.
It was inspirational to horror writer’s like Lovecraft though I think the “feminist” part might have gone over his head. Also it is better than his stuff anyway.

This is one of my actual favorite peices of literature, and I dream of a world where this was acknowledged as the birth of western psychological horror. BECAUSE IT IS.
YOOOOOOO everybody needs to read this story because it’s SUPER GREAT.
followers? please reblog wth any advice! :)
I mixed cheese with my tuna. It goes down heavenly for me.
Tuna Noona is an old family favorite. Egg noodles, frozen peas, a little butter, and tuna. Cook noodles, dump in the peas to defrost, drain the water, add butter and tuna, stir until butter is melted. There are plenty of ways to fancy it up but this is the version we’ve always made and it’s nice and tasty.
(Still no kyaraben, sorry.)

I’m so glad this is done now so I can sell it! I need food and coffee massively. Buying one would help me generally exist right now. (inbox me what size you want and I’ll contact you all one by one).
This painting is very very special to me as an artist. My four Creator characters: Imagni, Gala, Rodela and Unusti are all parts of my art spirit in different ways. Things that are present in all artists. This image is about the joy and relief creativity brings in a single moment.
